Genesys named one of America's top 50 hospitals five years in a row

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) For the fifth consecutive year, Genesys has been named one of America's 50 best hospitals!
HealthGrades, a national, independent source of physician information and hospital quality outcomes, released its 2011 report last week, which shows only 19 states in the entire country earned a spot in the top 50 list, and only four hospitals in Michigan were named as one of America's best. Genesys is the only hospital in the region to receive this award.

America's top 50 hospitals are those in the top 5 percent for clinical quality, low mortality rates and low complication rates for the most consecutive years. On an average, patients treated in one of America's top 50 hospitals had a nearly 30 percent lower risk of death and a 3.45 percent lower rate of complications in 26 different procedures and diagnoses.

Through this study, HealthGrades found that if all US hospitals performed at the level of Genesys, more than half a million Medicare deaths could have been prevented between 1999 and 2009. The study was based on an analysis of more than 140 million Medicare patients records.

According to the HealthGrades report, Genesys is ranked #1 in Michigan for overall pulmonary services.

In addition to this achievement, Genesys also received the nation's top 5 percent distinction from HealthGrades for the following:

Cardiac Care Excellence award two years in a row
Coronary Intervention Excellence award two years in a row
Stroke Care Excellence award seven years in a row
Pulmonary Care Excellence award six years in a row
Critical Care Excellence award five years in a row
Women's Health Excellence award three years in a row
Gastrointestinal Care Excellence award

Genesys also received a five star rating (the highest rating possible) from HealthGrades for:

cardiology services three years in a row
coronary interventional procedures two years in a row
treatment of heart attack five years in a row
treatment of heart failure nine years in a row
spine surgery two years in a row
back and neck surgery (except spinal fusion) two years in a row
treatment of stroke nine years in a row
overall pulmonary services seven years in a row
treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease eight years in a row
treatment of pneumonia nine years in a row
GI procedures and surgeries
treatment of GI bleed five years in a row
overall critical care five years in a row
treatment of sepsis seven years in a row
treatment of pulmonary embolism five years in a row
treatment of respiratory failure seven years in a row
women's health three years in a row

In addition, Genesys was named a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence for the ninth consecutive year. Recipients of the America's 50 Best Hospitals award are ones that have received the Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence award for at least seven consecutive years.

According to HealthGrades, America's 50 Best Hospitals are setting national benchmarks for excellence in clinical quality and they should stand as institutions to be learned from and emulated. These hospitals have demonstrated sustained quality excellence.

(The four hospitals in Michigan named as one of the 50 best in the US include: Genesys, Beaumont, St. Mary's Mercy in Livonia and Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.)
